Additional grants awarded for NH broadband expansion
$14 million in federal funds aims to build out access in more rural communities
The governor said he is allocating $14 million in federal funds through the Connecting New Hampshire Emergency Broadband Expansion Program.
The emergency broadband program was launched as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic as a way to connect homes in rural communities that don’t have access to broadband.
Earlier this month, Sununu announced a separate allocation of broadband funding to several other communities.
Together, that brings the total number of communities receiving assistance to 18: Bristol, Canaan, Clarksville, Colebrook, Danbury, Deering, Errol, Hinsdale, Hillsborough, Lempster, Loudon, Mason, Nelson, Springfield, Stewartstown, Stoddard and Washington.
